If this encounter results in Taylor Swift / Marilyn Manson collaboration, fans should be grateful

People freaked out about pics of Swift with Manson and what it might mean. I hope it means an amazing new track!
People don't realize most celebrities travel in the same circles. Marilyn Manson and Taylor Swift may seem like polar opposites, but they probably have more in common with each other than their own fans. Tough pill to swallow, but they are both musicians and derive a living from their artistic endeavors and creativity.

They were photographed together at iHeart's Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles. Reporters and journalists have spun this series of pictures into a variety to tales from friendship to musical collaborations. To be honest, I'd love to see them collaborate on a song. They're both very creative people in different ways.

Avril Lavigne did a track with Manson on her self-titled album from 2013. Bad Girl primarily features Avril, but Manson's mark is clearly there. It's a very strong song and a definite favorite from this album. I wanted Taylor's collaboration with Brendon Urie (Panic! At The Disco) on "ME" to take a path farther from Swift's comfort zone. I'm pretty sure Marilyn Manson is the man for that job. They could create a killer track together!
